Many are upset that Marvel and Netflix pulled the plug on Iron Fist after the cliffhanger ending seen in the season 2 finale, and are disappointed that they won't get to see the characters continue to develop in future seasons centered around new and exciting stories. The petition, which can be found on Change.org, has already reached over 10,000 signatures outs of its initial goal of 15,000.
The cancellation of Iron Fist was surprising to some.
Netflix's "Iron Fist", AKA everyone's least favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe property, will not be renewed for a third season. I think it's unfair that Luke Cage, Jessica Jones andDaredevil get a third season and their shows get mixed reviews too yet Iron Fist gets the shaft. For that level of resolution, fans just might need a third season. "There is so much more story to tell".
Despite such plans, however, the other Netflix-Marvel series are expected to continue.
"I have an enormous amount of love and respect for everyone involved with the last two seasons of this show", Jones wrote. Disney Play is meant to be a more family-friendly service through and through, which means that the dark, gritty, and sometimes violent Marvel shows on Netflix would likely not be a good fit within those parameters.
Grammatical errors aside, it's worth noting that even though Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage may have gotten a few mixed reviews, their seasons were better received on both their freshman and sophomore run.
The comment comes just days before the premiere of Daredevil Season 3, which is Marvel's flagship series on Netflix.
With the Disney Play streaming service looming on the horizon, many have wondered if all of Marvel's on-air content (including Iron Fist) will be absorbed by the upcoming streaming service. In a statement to The Insider, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos addressed Iron Fist's cancellation and the other series' continuation. "Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is proud of the series and grateful for all of the hard work from our incredible cast, crew and showrunners", Marvel and Netflix added. We may no longer be getting new Netflix Marvel shows, but that doesn't preclude the ongoing series from getting third, fourth, or even fifth seasons. It's certainly happened before.
